On October 14, a new haunted attraction opens its doors for the first time, offering a Halloween Family Festival, a Family Safety Fair, and a Haunted House. The latter, billed as scary but not "offensive," is being produced by Shipwreck Productions, the company that handled the Queen Mary Halloween Terrorfest until 2008. It is not recommended for children under 13.
Shipwreck Productions took over the haunted house after a previous company bowed out. The organizer of the fund-raising event reached out to Hollywood Gothique for suggestions about professional haunters who provide a walk-through attraction; otherwise, there was no involvement on our part.
Located at Lost Canyons Golf Club, 3301 Lost Canyons Drive, Simi Valley, CA 93063, 13 Nights of Terror promises to be "more than just a Haunted House," with dance parties, live concerts, and other special events, such as fire dancers and/or extreme juggling shows (included for the regular price of admission).
13 Nights of Terror will operate on October 14-17, 21-24, 27-31. Hours: 7pm-10pm on weekdays and Sundays; 7:00pm-midnight on Fridays and Saturdays; 6:00pm-10:00pm on Halloween night. Special "lights on" family-friendly matinee on October 30, noon to 5:00pm.
Adult admission price (16 and over) is $13. Child price (under 16) is $11. And VIP tickets are two for $45 (includes dinner, front of the line, reserved parking, and special VIP experience--limited to 30 people per hour). Proceeds benefit the non-profit Gull Wings Children's Museum.
